Insanity is often defined as doing the same thing over and over while expecting a different result. That definition fits the behavior of Texas Governor Rick Perry rather well. He insists that he will continue to call special sessions of the Texas Legislature until they take up the gerrymandered redistricting proposal that has fractured it. Enough is Enough, Perry. Time to move on.

One thing about this affair is certain. It will have an effect at the polls. I can’t really predict what it will be. Frankly, I’m more sympathetic with the Democrats in this instance than with the Republicans. The only fair thing to do, though, might be to vote everyone involved with this out of office, starting with U.S. Representative Tom Delay.
